This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 14, Unit 5, Grade 6. In this activity, students practice calculating quotients of decimals by multiplying both the divisor and the dividend by an appropriate power of 10. Then, they extend their practice to calculate quotients of decimals in real-world contexts. Problem A reiterates earlier experiences with the "how much is in each group" and "how many groups" interpretations of division. Problem B recalls students' prior work with ratios and determining rate of speed.
